Neal Cassady Drops Dead

Album: World Peace Is None of Your Business (2014)
  • Neal Cassady drops dead
    And Allen Ginsberg's tears shampoo his beard
    Neal Cassady drops dead
    And Allen Ginsberg's lips tighten and thin

    Neal Cassady drops dead
    And Allen Ginsberg's hosed down in a barn
    Neal Cassady drops dead
    And Allen Ginsberg's howl becomes a growl

    Everyone has babies
    Babies full of rabies
    Rabies full of scabies
    Scarlet has a fever
    Ring is full of ringworm
    Angel of disdain
    Poor little fella has got rubella

    Liver full of fungus
    Junior full of gangrene
    Mine is melanoma
    Tike full of gripe
    Whippersnapper's scurvy
    Urchin made of acne
    Get that thing away from me

    Victim, or life's adventurer
    Which of the two are you?
    Victim or life's adventurer
    Which of the two are you? Writer/s: GUSTAVO ADOLFO JR MANZUR, STEVEN MORRISSEY
